Outlining with Core’dinations

Sanding is key when using Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock! Sanding isn’t just about letting the ColorCore show, it is about showing off the ColorCore to add dimension and design.
There obvious areas I sanded with my Sand It Gadget but the splashes at the top of my layout are the most unique! This technique is called outlining. All it is, is sanding over some chipboard or other embellishment so when you are done sanding…you have the “outline” of the image! You can check out a video on it here.
Core’dinations Supplies:
Other Supplies:
Darice Sequins
Sizzix Dies
Cart-Us Embossing Folder
Elle’s Studio Tags
American Crafts Sticker
EK Success & Epiphany Crafts Punches
Jillibean Soup Alphas
The not-so-obvious areas I sanded were the arrows and waves.  Sanding these elements helped give a 3-D effect without adding height.

 After sanding your Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock, don’t forget to dust with your Dust Buddy!  It really does clean up the dust and keep the colors true.
